A2K - can I print a FORM in landscape mode?

P: n/a
I'm in the situation of having to print a form - not a report. This will
fit nicely in a landscape format but by default it prints portrait. Is
there any code to make it play nice?

Open the form, then click on File + Page SetUp + Page
Set the orientation to Landscape and save the change.

However, printing the form from the form view is not efficient and you
are quite limited as to what you can do.
Save the form as a report (right-click on the form name and then
select "Save as Report"). Then print the report. You now have the all
advantages that printing reports have.

Thanks that sorted it for now. My fault for letting it get into this
situation (this was work that was done for me).

FredG,
I didn't know about the "Save As Report" feature. Great.

One caveat for the original poster....
If you're using an unbound record source, then you may be fine. But if your
record source is a 10,000 record table or query, then your user may kill a
lot of trees....

Thanks,
